Design of Compact Transversal Wideband Bandpass Filter with Wide Upper Stopband
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 96, 79-87, 2020
Abstract
A compact wideband bandpass filter (BPF) with stopband suppression by utilizing transversal signal interaction concepts is proposed in this article. Two transmission paths from Port I to Port II are separately constructed by multi-mode step impedance resonator (SIR) and shorted coupled lines. The proposed configuration generates two controllable transmission poles, and wideband characteristic can be realized. Moreover, multiple transmission zeros are implemented by signals superposition of two transmission paths and stub loaded fans resulting in steepness sideband and broad upper stopband suppression up to 100 GHz. For clarification, the designed wideband centered at 4.5 GHz with fractional bandwidth of 14.2% is designed, assembled and measured. The circuit size of prototype BPF only occupies 0.94 cm2, and the presented BPF is evaluated by test results and simulated predictions with good agreement.
